His progression has been constant, as he has progressed from 21 goals in his first year, to 29 the year after and 31 in his third season.

His name, which translates as ‘battery’, comes from his father, who owned a car battery store in his native Palmitos.

Technical profile

“Bateria” is the kind of player who can be relied on to deliver plenty of goals in a season, even though he is not a natural frontman. He is a left-footed winger that is also improving fast in defensive aspects of his game. He is quick and decisive, which makes him lethal whenever the opposing goal comes within his sights.
